About this title


No one is more curious and questioning than a small child as he discovers and tries to make sense of the whole big world around him. Rob Wood captures this sentiment delightfully in Why Don't Horses Wear Pajamas? Join Wyatt (Rob's grandson) as he shares some of the unblemished questions rambling through his little head on a daily basis. Rob Thouless's charming illustrations breathe life into Wyatt's queries with characters portrayed just as a young child might envision them and they show us how life is a lot more fun when examined through the eyes of a four year old. Why Don't Horses Wear Pajamas? is the first book in the Wyatt Wonders Series that also includes Why Don't Worms Have Heads?, Why Don't Kids Have Tails? and Why Don't Fireflies Need Batteries?

From the Inside Flap:

The Story Behind Why Don't Horses Wear Pajamas?
My four year old grandson, Wyatt, came up from Uvalde, Texas for a visit recently and as usual, the first thing he wanted to do was go on a hike. He knew full well that the word "no" wasn't in my vocabulary regarding such matters, so we filled his canteen and headed out. After a while, we reached the top of a modest hill and Wyatt (for my benefit I'm sure) suggested, "Grandpa, let's take a rest by that big tree." I wasn't about to argue. We stretched out on our backs in the sweet grass, hands folded behind our heads and elbows pointed to the twins. We sat in silence enjoying the smells of spring and soon found ourselves eyeball-to-eyeball with a big bay gelding named Buster. The broomtail was looking us over carefully and his eyes were saying, "I sure hope you two don't have a saddle with you. I hate giving pony rides." We quietly returned his gaze until Wyatt broke the silence with a sincere question that caught me flat footed, "Grandpa, why don't horses wear pajamas?" I couldn't help but chuckle.
Now, up to that point in my life I considered myself fairly knowledgeable in matters regarding horses, but his question left me momentarily tongue-tied. After a bit, I gathered my wits and came back with, "That sounds like a great title for a children's book."
Wyatt then asked, "Can we write a book together about why horses don't wear pajamas?"
I thought to myself, "That might be a fun little project and a good way to spend some quality time together."  We marched back to the house and after a careful inspection for ticks, we sat down with a notebook and engaged in what I expected to be a futile but well intended attempt to co-author a short book. To my surprise, Why Don't Horses Have Pajamas?  is what "WE" came up with.
